SIGNATURE SERVICE INITIATIVE
Beaches Rotaract's Signature Service Initiative represents a sustained commitment to address our community’s greatest needs head-on. Finding solutions for the most complex issues takes time, dedication, fundraising, and volunteer efforts.
Our first focus is Youth Development. In partnership with Read USA, our club hopes to serve every Title 1 Elementary School in Duval County by providing mentoring and over 150,000 new books to over 42,000 underprivileged students, 81 schools, and 5 community centers in 2020 and beyond.
